I remain to be convinced that priorities have really changed.

[Update: 3.8.21 The frame is still in this location, in this position but the sign has disappeared.] [Image taken 30.7.21] Lendal Bridge, York. This fallen/redundant sign on the Environment Agency-signposted diversion route ('wellingtonrowe ... [more]

[Image taken 30.7.21] Wellington Row, York. Yet another fallen/redundant sign on this Environment Agency-signposted diversion route ('wellingtonrowesplanadelivediversion') the day before a weekend. All images today: #172716 and links

Information panel under the Carnon Viaduct on Cornwall's Coast-to-Coast Trail

When a black triangle is shown at an end of a Greater Anglia train it means the bicycle section (shown by a green side stripe) is at that end of the train.

Milestone in Aldeburgh

I was told that quite a few cyclists are using the Sailor’s Path, but that it’s a bit narrow and sandy in places.

Licensed Footpath Unfortunately this does not refer to the sale of alcoholic beverages 🧐

Cyclists Dismount sign at the entry to the Penryn University Campus from the west

Buses and bikes only on a cut-off section of the A39 - and a cycle route sign to Falmouth, presumably via the byway to Perranwell Station.

Sign at Saxmundham Station explaining how the railway has washed it’s hands at the idea of transporting hundreds of riders and their bikes back to London on the weekend of the Dunwich Dynamo ride.

Lost 🐈‍⬛ Have you seen it? £300 for the painting!

Pop-up traffic-free zone 10-6 daily, cycle contraflow at other times - on NCN route 4

[Image taken 20.7.21] Station Avenue, York. Nine hours after I took this photo: #172328 the signs have not been righted. Other images today: #172321 and links

[Image taken 20.7.21] Memorial Gardens/Leeman Road, York. Sign now realigned - one I could actually reach and do myself. Compare with #171371. All images here today: #172324 and links

[Image taken 20.7.21] Memorial Gardens/Leeman Road, York. Compare with: #171372. Other images today: #172321 and links

An old motor car dealership See #60555

After how many months? - still no indication that Mill Road bridge is open, except to motor vehicles.

Another Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway sign - but the shared-use path definitely continues for a while around the corner to the left.

Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway sign approaching the new Robin Hood junction - a cycle symbol and arrow on the ground would help.

No Cycling sign, and no dropped kerb - but there's nothing at the far end to say cycling isn't allowed.

The pram handles have gone, and now there's a DIY No Motorcycles sign.

I don't know what the shared-use sign refers to - the red route should really be cycles only and in the other direction.

The enforceable limit is 40mph, the advisable limit is 25mph.

Are these warning signs really consistent with a 40mph limit as can be seen in the distance. I suppose a highway engineer would say “…it’s designed as a 40mph road…” and stare through you defocussed.

Useful map explaining walking and cycling routes.

Completely faded signs for a footpath, but the fact that these signs exist is probably enough to guide the wise walker.

[Image taken 11.7.21] George Hudson Street (direction of Rougier Street), York. This oversized sign is angled away from the road which means it may not be seen by those it is aimed at. It needs moving: to make it visible, to remove the obst ... [more]

It is the end of the route, although a Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway sign might make more sense.

Overhead barrier with No Horses sign - no cycling either on this footpath out of the Oughtonhead Common Nature Reserve, Hitchin

No Bicycles at the rear of Ickleford church

Anglia Ruskin University cycle cull notice

Somewhere in Nové Mesto, Bratislava - these new signs are supposed to be humorous, but they just say 'Let's get them home safely'.

Update: Sign on ground 8.7.21: #171575. The message visible on the sign: #171576. [Image taken 5.7.21] York rail station fallen sign. So it's not doing its job and it is creating a hazard. [Please note: no streetview at this location.] Othe ... [more]

The blue and white contraflow sign is the wrong way round, and Except Cycles plates are needed on the red and white signs. Hardly the first time they've got it wrong on Histon Road.

[Update: #171403] [Image taken 4.7.21.] Rougier Street, York. Redundant sign ie clutter and a potential hazard. It’s been here since at least 13.6.21 – see: #170128. It is now attracting rubbish – in the form of a covid-19 facemask. T ... [more]

A story in three parts

No Cycling (and no dropped kerb) on Cuckoo Lane, Headington

No Cycling on Cuckoo Lane, Headington

No Cycling on Cuckoo Lane, Headington

Problems with the school run, I suspect.

One sign with an Except Cycles plate, one without - and a car parked but leaving the (temporarily) contraflow cycle lane open.

More confusion - the yellow and black signs are correct, the road is currently northbound only for motor vehicles, so the blue and white sign is the wrong way round.

What cyclists? Northbound cyclists will be on the other side of the road.

A letter to Newnham residents from the Lib Den councillors - the petition against removing car parking at the start of Grantchester Meadows will be considered by the county council, so there will be no changes before 27 July.

A 15km former Tank Road in central Slovakia is now a cycleway (this is not the location of the sign).

Start of the Côte d'Oughtibridge - one of the vicious climbs made famous when the Tour de France came to Yorkshire.

Notice of the county council's plans to close the car parking at the north end of Grantchester Meadows, and a petition against it.

Entrance to Balgonie Road on Arisaig Drive.

Approaching the bus-gate roundabout bypass on Paisley Road West.

Cyclists following the Glasgow to Paisley cycle route are to dismount and cross the road to the next 'Cyclists Dismount' sign, follow the footway around the corner to the pedestrian crossings at the motorway junction, cross over to the park ... [more]

The sign back at #170595 should have warned that this left turn is directly onto the M8 motorway.

The sign should really mention that motorway regulations begin immediately on the road with the motorway numbers all in brackets. This is a sliproad directly onto the eastbound M8 motorway, see #170597.

Information on the Aurrigo autonomous vehicle trails on the West Cambridge site

Dismount and Use Footway ... Footpath Closed.... contradictory signs, in fact the only option really is to cross to the footway and cycleway across the road.

[Image taken 19.6.21] Station Road/Rougier Street/Tanner's Moat junction, York. Freestanding signage for temporary works seems to create more issues (such as being an eyesore as here) than it solves. If no-one removes it after use, or if it ... [more]

[Image taken 19.6.21] Rougier Street, York. Is this damaged sign that narrows the pavement and could fall into the road to become a hazard for people on cycles, this one: #170133? Other images today: #170482 and links. Other images like thi ... [more]

[Image taken 19.6.21] York rail station. Good practice. Many people park their cycles at the station for differing lengths of time. This sign is where people on cycles can see it, it's bright red so very visible and the image shows immediat ... [more]

Update: I saw late afternoon on 28.6.21 the sign and sandbag have been removed. [Image taken 20.6.21] Marygate car park, York. Sign not doing its job. Sandbag creates a hidden hazard. The sign was in situ on 6.5.21 see: #168554. But who own ... [more]

The price of the Walberswick to Southwold ferry has gone up from 70p in 2007 #11240, 80p in 2010 #27590 and £1 in 2015 #72061 to £2 per adult and per bike. But the ferry is now motorized

'No Cycling' on the narrow path next to Robertson Park. There is a parallel route through the park where cycling is permitted.

The 'Beware of Cycles' sign on Kirklandneuk Road is facing traffic leaving rather than joining Inchinnan Road.

Beware of Cycles, this way and that. Abbotsinch Road.

'Beware of Cycles' on various roads joining Inchinnan Road. The cycle provision on the A8 Inchinnan Road appears to consist of nothing more than signs.

Cycle-friendly improvements coming on Paternoster Row, Sheffield

No pedestrian or cycle access to this Supertram bridge

Pop-up road closure - Except Cycles plates needed on these signs.

No Entry Except Cycles - ie contraflow cycling on the road, not just the route to the left, I presume.

Cyclists Dismount on Sheffield University campus

[Image taken 14.6.21] Toft Green, York. Sign not doing its job. A trip hazard. Other images this issue today: #170165, #170166. This issue all dates search on ‘fallensign’ and ‘redundantsign’. All images today: #170159 and links.

Update: The barricade had gone on 19.6.21. The sign remained. [Image taken 13.6.21] Rougier Street, York. I caught my wheel on the protruding base of this barrier as I passed. It started to fall on me. It’s unstable. If a child knocked it ... [more]

[Update see: #171374] [Image taken 13.6.21] Rougier Street, York. Is this the number to ring to report a problem with this sign? Signs on live projects need to be checked on and regularly if they are in locations where they can be knocked, ... [more]

Update: On 19.6.21 this sign seemed to have been restored to the pavement see: #170483. [Image taken 13.6.21] Rougier Street, York. This is one of the fallen signs and cone I have been trying to report. On 12.6.21 they were here: #170004 an ... [more]

The footbridge destroyed in Storm Desmond in 2015 will be rebuilt as a foot and cycle bridge linking the centre of Kendal with NCN route 6.

[Update 15.6.21. These had gone today.] [Image taken 13.6.21] Rougier Street, York. Three completely flat signs and one without the information side showing: so four temporary signs not doing their job and therefore creating an obstruction ... [more]

Start of the Loughrigg Terrace bridleway into the National Trust's High Close Estate

[Image taken 12.6.21] Tanner’s Moat, York. This Environment Agency sign has three phone numbers. Which can you ring on a Saturday to report issues such as: #170086? Related issues today see: #170080 and links. See also image from 13.6.21: ... [more]

Thirlmere Dam Road - closed to motor vehicles but not cyclists and pedestrians.

It's not clear that the Thirlmere dam road is closed to motor vehicles but not cycles - but it is.

Path up to the former Threlkeld to Keswick railway line

The former road south from Threlkeld towards Grasmere - still open for cyclists, as long as you can cross the A66.

It's not the end of the route - the sign should read 'Cyclists Rejoin Carriageway'.

No Cycling on this National Trust land by Derwent Water

For some reason cyclists on NCN route 71 are suddenly worthy of a painted lane on the A5271 west from Keswick. There's plenty of room to create a shared-use route to the left.

No Cycling on NCN route 71... at least over the suspension bridge.

Cyclists Dismount signs where the shared-use path crosses a side road

Start of the excellent new (post-flooding) Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Path

There is a steep climb to rejoin the old Penrith-Keswick road through Threlkeld, but I didn't need to dismount.

The vaguely adequate shared-use footway has to end before the M6 bridge, presumably on grounds of safety.

Slightly odd sign - this turns out to be a dead end with just a footpath exit at the far end.

These signs are dated 1997 and show the route of NCN route 68 as undecided.

'Busy Road Ahead' on NCN route 68 on the former railway south from Haltwhistle - actually it's a very quiet road!

Typical - there are two bridges across the river to Haltwhistle and both are open for cyclists and pedestrians. But highways signage is always aimed at drivers.

Information panel at the Alston Arches viaduct, Haltwhistle

No Motor Vehicles (except for access) on this cut-through towards Hexham Middle School

[Image taken 9.6.21] Wellington Row, York. This sign is not only not doing a job it is unsightly and, if it fell or was knocked over, could be a hazard. I assume it is part of the Environment Agency's flood works (see: #168588) and will sen ... [more]

No motor vehicles on the bridleway south from Acomb

Dead-end - but not for cyclists or pedestrians

[Image taken 9.6.21] Skeldergate, York. I noticed this sign today. Perhaps because the street was quiet so I could look ahead? And because my eye naturally followed the vehicles ahead? I can't read the yellow sign in the background in the i ... [more]

No Cycling signs on this footpath
